    What should I do if I don't find any poop for a couple of days and the vegetable oil or the warm baths don't help? I just want to be prepared ahead of time.

    I already explained what was probably best to do in a previous post, it's essentially the same thing @kholtme is saying, please go back and re read it

    I'll just leave him alone and not stress him out with tefeed him for a couple of days and then I will see what will happen. If he doesn't poop within a couple of days then I will try the vegetable oil on nose trick. If that doesn't work then maybe later I will take him to the vet.

    BTW does shedding slow down a Leos digestive tract ? As Spotty is shedding right now. Thanks

    I dont think it will slow down his digestive track, but they do eat their shed so it can make their poop different. I think you are worrying to much. Give it another couple days and see what happens. Have you tried the veggie oil yet?

    Today is the 8th day of him not pooping. I am no longer giving him baths because of stress and I will just wait until tomorrow to give him the oil. I actually read some more information about the oil and people say to try to give them some olive oil as veggie oil is less healthy and is more of a laxative than a lubricant.

    Actually, I just gave him 2 drops of olive oil as I read somewhere online that you shouldn't use veggie oil.
